The COVID-19 pandemic is currently putting the education system to the test by forcing face-to-face learning environments to quickly move online. Hence, it becomes the responsibility of teachers to design online learning modules (OLMs) that will serve as main resource for students to acquire the necessary competencies (in terms of knowledge, skills and attitudes) and become self-directed learners. This talk intends to provide information and guidance on how teachers may use the action research process in evaluating the efficacy of the OLMs they have designed and implemented in their classes.
